Last Friday Night Card July 5 at Hollywood

Late change to schedule made as tribute in 75th and final season for historic track.

Betfair Hollywood Park will have a special Friday night program July 5 in honor of the track's 75th anniversary season.

What will be the final night card at the historic venue, which will cease racing at the end of the autumn meet Dec. 22, was approved May 29 by the California Horse Racing Board. Post time will be 7:05 p.m. PDT.

"Hollywood Park was a pioneer for night racing and we thought this would be a good way to honor the past,'' said track president Jack Liebau. "We're looking forward to having one last Friday night.''

Liebau said a concert, with a yet-to-be determined guest, will be offered after the evening's races are concluded.
